Bob Arum Responds to Mayweather's Twitter Callout: "June 9 is perfect"

Hours after Floyd Mayweather Jr. urged Manny Pacquiao to "step up punk" and f!ght him May 5, the Filipino boxing star answered with his own message:

Just wait a few more weeks.

Pacquiao huddled with his promoter Bob Arum on Wednesday in the Philippines and agreed the best course for pursuing a long-awaited f!ght date against Mayweather is to schedule it for late May, or, ideally, June 9.

Mayweather faces a June 1 date to report for an already delayed 90-day jail term in a domestic violence case, but Arum said he'd be "willing to chip in for lawyers' fees" to get that date moved again so a June 9 bout could occur.

Mayweather is scheduled to f!ght May 5 in Las Vegas against an as-yet unnamed opponent. "June 9 is perfect," Arum said. "May 5 is out, that's impossible."


The extra time is needed for construction of an arena, said Arum, claiming the f!ghters could generate an extra $40 million by f!ghting at a 40,000-plus-seat venue on the Las Vegas Strip rather than holding the bout at the 16,000-seat MGM. "You don't throw $40 million away," Arum said.

Arum said he's skeptical of Mayweather's Tuesday Twitter posts urging Pacquiao to "step up punk." Mayweather tweeted, "Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's f!ght May 5th and give the world what they want to see." Arum said he has heard Mayweather is negotiating with Robert Guerrero for a May 5 f!ght.

After giving Pacquiao videos of possible opponents Miguel Cotto and Lamont Peterson, Arum expects Pacquiao to choose among those two, Timothy Bradley or Juan Manuel Marquez as an alternate opponent to Mayweather before the promoter leaves the country this weekend.

What does Arum want from the Mayweather camp?

"I want to hear… that they're willing to move to June 9," Arum said. "Then we can sit down and work out a deal.":

I know the judge would push the jail time back again

Pac should hang his head in shame

I'm sure Floyd can get the date pushed back again. Now, if he does that and then Arum's punk a.ss flips the sh*t again then I'm gonna find that bi*ch myself and beat him with pillowcases full of denture creme or some sh*t.

after reading the article

Arum does come across sincere but knowing him its some B.S

its not farfetched that the judge will push the date back again

all the reasons the judge originally pushed the date back are still the reasons he needs to push it back again

actually even more money is involved so why not

There's nothing sincere about arum at all. It's a farce.

I will give him props though, he getting his cash even if it is at the expense of Manny's legacy and boxing.
